Sometimes you wish water could talk. Like when you’re touring Hearst Castle, and you stand in awe of the elegantly tiled room with placid pools mirroring the ambiance of times gone by.
What could that water describe? Early-morning swims by one privileged person? Raucous parties carousing among the statuary? Swimmers who dare not leave the seclusion and protection of La Cuesta Encantada, the “Enchanted Hill”?
But it’s just water, right? No words. No secrets. Reflections only.
